In this regard, Shadab Khan clarified that the rumors about the captaincy of the Pakistan team are not correct. He also said that Babar was the captain before and still is. He is only rested for the series against Afghanistan.”Babur Azam is our king, we are his subjects”.The star of Pakistan said this in response to questions from reporters at the press conference following Babar Azam-led Peshawar Zalmi’s elimination of Islamabad United from the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Thursday.
Meanwhile, under the leadership of Shadab Khan, not only captain Babar Azam but some senior players have been rested. Such a move by PCB has created speculations. Players are being tested to lead. Earlier Shaheen Shah Afridi was rumored to lead the team. Shadab Khan was mysteriously given the responsibility of the captain of the Afghanistan series. Meanwhile, when asked about the tour of the United Arab Emirates, Shadab said, “Undoubtedly, the Afghan team is a good T20 team and we have to try our best against them.” We have to try to play well without any fear.
